"Melody" by Serge Gainsbourg
Cover of the Week #1
Okay…a brief search reveals this may be the most covered song of all time…maybe? Seriously, from Billie Holiday (dreamy) to mama cass (sweetness) to Frank Sinatra (swingin), everyone’s had a go at this stunner. Originally from 1938 musical Right This Way, written by Irving Kahal, it’s been on everything from Get Smart to The Notebook. It’s at once winsome and light and a touch nostalgic. This particular cover is gold: Hardy’s French croon and Iggy’s loucheness..work surprisingly well. Seriously.
